Reservists train with Welsh Guards in Kenya

Over the past six weeks reservists soldiers from the Third Battalion Royal Welsh have been training alongside 800 Welsh Guards in gruelling heat and difficult terrain in Kenya.

The "Askari Storm" exercise is the first time that part-time soldiers have trained alongside full-time regulars, following a major shake-up and restructuring review known as Army 2020.

Reporting from Kenya, Elen Wyn has been looking at how the Army will become more dependent on reservists over the next few years.
